Haytor granite tramway
Haytor granite tramway
This is part of the Haytor tramway, that took granite from quarries around Haytor to the Stover Canal and River Teign from 1820 to 1858. The rails themselves were granite, cut with outer flanged edges. The gauge was 4'3". The route is now used by the Templer Way, commemorating the Templer family, who managed the quarries and supervised the construction of the tramway.
